** "Helta Skelta" & reissue bonus tracks
TRBNGR's metallic deathtrip from
1992 feat. Harald Fossberg of late 70's Norwegian punk pioneers HÆRVERK on vocals.
Contemporary critics agreed that this must be the ultimate cross-over of Venom & Radio Birdman !!
Great tracks like "Librium Love" and "Destructive Girls" constantly made it into their live-set
all through the 90's.
The album had been originally released as a 11-song CD on Big Ball Records, the subsequent edition on Repulsion Records entitled "Helta Skelta" featured four additional songs plus the exclusive audio play "A career in indierock" but left out the Leather Nun cover. The Bitzcore reissue combines the entire tracks from both prior releases in mighty improved sound and all wrapped in a new sleeve as well.
Besides, it is available for the first time on vinyl (without tracks 11 & 16), extremely limited quantities of the vinyl (less than 60 copies each) were pressed on yellow as well as green vinyl.
The CD reissue from 2007 contains the identical tracks but in different order.
Line-up on this recording:
Harry Fossberg (vocals), Bingo (bass), Pål & Rune (guitars), Happy-Tom (drums)
